First Day 



This year, the first day of school was different than most. For the first time in SHS 
patrons memories, the freshman were thrust into the new world of high school with 
upperclassmen watching. Instead of orientation, new students and new teachers had 
to stumble through their first day with everybody else. Southbridge High is still a 
place of spirit and pride, of friendship and fun, and of academic and athletic 
excellence. From the freshman stepping meekly over the threshold into our hallowed 
halls to the seniors boldly striding to graduation, we all entered together as one and 
because the "SHS family" eagerly turning towards the new year.

the first day of school.

Senior Class History 



Freshman Year: 

We started our high school careers with uncertainty and fear, as the seniors made it very clear 
they were in charge. We elected class officers — President Lily Collazo, Vice President Jocelyn 
Tallis, Secretary Hilary Dargie, and Treasurer Cristy Vallee. We managed to find an advisor, Mrs. 
Lind, and started to plan for our first Thanksgiving Day Rally at SHS, We decided on the theme, 
"The Trojan War," with Joel Rines debuting as Helen of Troy. Not knowing any better, we taped 
our skit and performed it with no live narrators, but we did have some amazing special effects — 
that is the infamous echo. We placed fourth in everything and were forced to watch the Class of 
'95 win almost everything. Realizing the competitive nature of this rally, we looked towards 
sophomore year with our new class advisor, the small but spunky Mr. Alan "Mouse" Beaudry. 

Sophomore Year: 

With the stress of being freshman lifted, we began to look for our identity as a class. We revamped 
the executive board and elected Chris Martin as President, Miranda Guardiani as Vice President, 
Hilary remained Secretary, and Cristy Vallee as Treasurer. Driven by Mouse we became confident 
in ourselves and papered the halls with posters made of free Flexcon, and soon realized that 
sophomores has an "o" in it. We decided on the theme "Sophomore Swing" based on the movie 
"Swing Kids" and began rehearsals under the direction of Gina. We learned how to swing dance 
with the best of them, but our dazzling choreography and Niki's rendition of the Andrew's Sisters, 
"Bei Mir Bistel Shien" failed to impress the judges — we placed third in the skit competition and 
fourth in poster. Thus began our reputation for being the class that can't win anything. We proved 
our reputation wrong, however, with our startling second place finish in the Winter Carnival, even 
though Cristy was cheated out of her first place position in the limbo contest. We learned that year 
to never underestimate ourselves, or the wiliness of the then present junior class and looked towards 
our first year as upperclassman with anticipation. 

Junior Year: 

We began our junior year with excitement and the drive to earn money for prom expenses. We 
kept two of the executive board members, Chris as President and Hilary as Secretary, and elected 
Kiley Payeur as Vice President and Rebecca Renaud as Treasurer. Mouse rallied us on in his second 
year as our advisor. Our ego, bruised from all the past losses, was healed when we took the 
Halloween Rally by storm and captured first place for the first time (thanks to the seniors rendition 
of "Jingle Bells" and a guest appearance by the 'Jackson 5'). Skit meetings started and Nick Hemeon 
led us through "The Pirates of the Pioneer" and we learned that our cheerleaders really were "those 
kinds of girls" with the infamous bar scene and costumes. We learned to keep the theme more 
clean-cut as we took third in skit and second in poster. The Prom Committee started to work its 
magic with the "Reflections of the Orient" and spent most of our class' earnings. Mouse's classroom 
was overrun with dragons and lanterns and MacDonald's became the class hang-out. The roads 
became dangerous with overzealous newly licensed drivers, as many of us learned from the Driver's 
Ed guru, Ray Petrelli. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we lost Mouse but gained the 
equally small and spunky Ms. Laura Gallus. The year closed with a bang as Education Reform was 
upon us and there would be no school sanctions for our senior year. 

Senior Year: 

After a summer of collecting college applications and parties, we returned to SHS as proud 
seniors. We wanted to make our senior year one to remember, and with the addition of Doctor 
Hoogasian as a second advisor it would be hard to forget. There was a heated election between Chris 
and Lily for the presidency and, by a slim margin, Chris was victorious. Jason "Creep" Roberts was 
elected Vice President with the catchy campaign phrase: "Don't be sleeping, vote for Creepin'!!". 
Noi Bounphasaysonh became Secretary, and Miranda returned to the executive board as Treasurer. 
An involved decorating campaign began with the noticeable "Senior Walk of Fame." This year, 
MacDonald runs took on a whole new meaning. We began planning our Senior skit, and decided 
on "The Simpson's", which was full of guest appearances ranging from "The Jackson 5" to "The 
Biggest Turkey of them All: Star Trek Boy!!" We took first place in the skit competition and were 
robbed of first place in the poster competition by the Sophomore's OJ poster, but won first place 
in overall spirit. With a first place from the Thanksgiving Rally finally under our belt, we looked 
towards the remainder of the year with apprehension and excitement. Troubled by lack of school 
sanctions and getting the senior class trip to Rocking Horse Ranch approved, overloaded with 
college applications and essays, we wait for graduation when we will end our four years as SHS 
students. We have left our mark, not only on the people, but on the school itself (remember the P. A. 
system guys?) and will remember it not only a place were we learned about math and history, but 
as a place where we learned about ourselves. Good-bye SHS, we hope you'll remember us as we are 
today, confident and filled with "Pioneer Pride."

Academics here at SHS are of high 
value. Many students work along with 
their teachers to perform their best! Stu- 
dents here know that academics come 
first. Any student can tell you that. 
Students, however aren't the only ones 
who deserve credit. Teachers are always 
willing to stay after school and help 
students. Many teachers let the kids 
enjoy learning by making SHS fun.

High students dressed-up and had a rally 
to celebrate Halloween. Starting at 7:30, 
students came into school as witches, 
hillbillies, nerds, pirates, and almost 
anything you can think of. Students were 
able to wear their costumes throughout 
the day. After lunch, all of the students 
gathered in the gym for a rally. There 
were prizes given to winners for best 
costume, toilet paper wrapping, bagel 
eating, and the limbo. The rally was put 
on by the Student Council and many 
students participated in something. It 
was a great day!

Hopes were high for the 1995 varsity team led by Head Coach Santilli Jr. and teijl 
captains Shawn Demers, Marcos Rios, and all star/MVP Joel Trinque. After comiij 
from two straight years of border conference championships, a winning season vi 
more than hoped for, it was expected. And so, after weeks of back breaking doui I 
sessions, the Pioneers were ready to charge. 

Unfortunately, the first four weeks held more pain than glory for our migty 
Pioneers who, when the dust had cleared held a somewhat surprising record of 1 . 

But when it really mattered, the Pioneers proved to be down but not out, and wu 
increased efforts all around they regrouped and marched on to win not only the mil 
six games, but their third consecutive border conference title, displaying once age 1 } 
the "Pride and Excellence" of SHS.

The co-editors of this year's yearbook would like to thank the staff for all 
of their hard work. We would especially like to thank Luis Aviles, Kaitlyn 
Spinelli, and Stephen Staffieri for their extra effort in putting out this year's 
yearbook Think About It. We would also like to thank Miss P. for all of her 
hard work and dedication, and Roland for putting up with us. Thanks to 
Studio 1 and Martin Caprera for all of their time and effort, and to all of 
those who contributed photos for our use. A special thanks goes to the 
graphics department for their help with the advertising section of our 
yearbook. As a result of these hard working people, we know you'll enjoy

To the Class of 1996, 

It isn't very often that you can find a diverse group of individuals who can shine through even when faced with setbacks 
and disappointments. It has been an honor and a pleasure to have been welcomed by you, the Class of '96, as your advisors. 
We hope that your high school graduation, your first success, will inspire you to be successful in all your endeavors. 
Remember to be true to yourself and to never settle for anything less than that which makes you happy. Strength comes 
from within and the bonds that you have forged here at SHS will be a part of you for the rest of your lives. 

We wish you all the best that life has to offer, you deserve it. Congratulations! 
Love,

In Memory Of 




Mr. Edward J. Desroches 



Mr. Desroches served as Principal of Southbridge High School 
from 1962 to 1985. His influence went beyond the school and ef- 
fected many people in the town for three decades. Among his many 
accomplishments are the Edward J. Desroches Library Media Center 
and the outstanding teachers that he hired and molded during his ten- 
ure here at Southbridge High School. His work as a dedicated educa- 
tion professional will live on in the hearts and minds of every student 
who enters the school's hallways now and well into the future. We are 
honored to have known him and we will miss him. 

To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts.
